The HF are currently funding and designing a two tier Holmesdale display for the last home game of the season with Hull. These huge artworks are only possible with the help of the whole Palace fanbase so we ask that any who can spare a few quid throws it in the pot to send the boys off in style after what has been an incredible turnaround on and off the pitch. All donations welcome, we thank you for your generosity in advance.

We'll be putting on a show whatever it might be :p

It's been a huge turnaround in our fortunes and at the forefront of that was the way the fan base rallied together when confidence around the club was at an all time low for various reasons.

It's important to remember that as we see this season out, it is the fans that gave the platform to the players to come out and battle with us. Lately it seems we have got that relationship back with the players. They are constantly in the press recognising the backing in the stadium and away from home which is magic and highlights what a turnaround it has been since the Sunderland game.

That sort of resilience and mentality is something that you can not buy and can only be put down for the love of the Palace.

totally agree - since 'The Hunt Is On' was displayed we've had such a determined atmosphere, it's transferred to the players - so good to have our spirit back, real togetherness now - it's working wonders.

Will donate later

The Zaha display is a level we think as a group we think we should be reaching consistently. Time can be against us for some displays so anywhere between 1 or 2 weeks from planning to it being finished for the game.

There was a bit of a bun fight with the stewards when the guys tried to lower a banner from the top tier, as it was going to go over the cameraman.

Presumably they've considered how to avoid that this time.

We'll be putting on a show whatever it might be :p

It's been a huge turnaround in our fortunes and at the forefront of that was the way the fan base rallied together when confidence around the club was at an all time low for various reasons.

It's important to remember that as we see this season out, it is the fans that gave the platform to the players to come out and battle with us. Lately it seems we have got that relationship back with the players. They are constantly in the press recognising the backing in the stadium and away from home which is magic and highlights what a turnaround it has been since the Sunderland game.

That sort of resilience and mentality is something that you can not buy and can only be put down for the love of the Palace.

Seriously, it would be pretty poor if we don't acknowledge The two Sam's contribution?

It's not the fanbase that got the players more organised.
It's not the fanbase that signed 4 key players in January.
It's not the fanbase that had a word with Andros and got him lifting his efforts in training to match his efforts when on International duty.
It's not the fanbase that has got Wayne performing to a higher standard.
It's not the fanbase that identified that Liverpool were weak on corners and exploited it.
It's not the fanbase that got rid of seemingly deadwood backroom staff.
It is the players (bar the Jan signings) that got Super Al the sack in the first place.

So it would be only right that the display acknowledged the two Sams and the rest of the backroom staff for their contribution surely?

I think they said they would do a display that celebrated the spirit at the entire club, which is a good way of recognising everyone's contribution without falling at anyone's feet 10 games in. Works for me.

Incredible turnaround that manager, players and fans alike should be proud of - all led by a local captain and youth product too :p

So I think it

You don't even know what the display is going to be yet. :D

No one in the group is unaware of the teams improved performances. However, I massively disagree with you on the point that the fans have had no part to play in our turn of fortunes. The Sunderland game saw the probably one of the lowest states this club has seen since Peter Taylor's season in charge of the club. The fans hadn't been that disconnected from the players in a very long time and there was a lot of bad blood from it. You could see it on the message boards as well as the stands, even in the HF you could see it and players, rightly or wrongly were called out on their commitment to the club and their own teammates.
You are talking about things that the fans have no control over, whilst my post was in reference to what the fans do have control over and what effect it can and was having throughout the season.

It is testament to us as a fanbase to of put that behind us and give the players a platform to come out and perform from a clean slate which happened against Boro when together we rallied to get behind the squad before kick off, which was recognised by the players themselves and still is. Even the new players like Sakho and Luka have tapped into that mentality that the fans are the 12th player on the pitch which has an effect on the way the players play.
Some may not get that attachment, like yourself or take on the matters and that is fair enough, we all have different levels of attachment to the club or why we support the club but I personally see it as that the fans are the beating soul of the club, we'll be here long after most players and management staff and as we see the season out I think we ourselves remember the role we have played in restoring that togetherness and spirit that makes us unique as a club.


Whatever the display is going to be, I'm sure it will be another moment in which we can display our uniqueness and passion for our football club. :p

In addition to donating online via bank transfer or Pay Pal there will be donation buckets in the Holmesdale stand, pre game, half time and post game predominately in the area behind block b and the smoking area in the lower Holmesdale. Much appreciated to everyone who has donated already.

FFS Eltron, you must sit in the old stand yet missed that the turning point of the season was when an old stander yelled 'my word' at the players as they left the field at half time v Sunderland. That fan definitely turned the season round, not the management who have nothing to do with it.

Have we ever won a game when there has been one of these displays? They do look good but we mustn't enhance a jinx, if displays are indeed a jinx.

FFS Eltron, you must sit in the old stand yet missed that the turning point of the season was when an old stander yelled 'my word' at the players as they left the field at half time v Sunderland. That fan definitely turned the season round, not the management who have nothing to do with it.

Have we ever won a game when there has been one of these displays? They do look good but we mustn't enhance a jinx, if displays are indeed a jinx.

3-0 against Brighton stands out. The hark now hear sash display. :lux:

You don't even know what the display is going to be yet. :D

No one in the group is unaware of the teams improved performances. However, I massively disagree with you on the point that the fans have had no part to play in our turn of fortunes. The Sunderland game saw the probably one of the lowest states this club has seen since Peter Taylor's season in charge of the club. The fans hadn't been that disconnected from the players in a very long time and there was a lot of bad blood from it. You could see it on the message boards as well as the stands, even in the HF you could see it and players, rightly or wrongly were called out on their commitment to the club and their own teammates.
You are talking about things that the fans have no control over, whilst my post was in reference to what the fans do have control over and what effect it can and was having throughout the season.

It is testament to us as a fanbase to of put that behind us and give the players a platform to come out and perform from a clean slate which happened against Boro when together we rallied to get behind the squad before kick off, which was recognised by the players themselves and still is. Even the new players like Sakho and Luka have tapped into that mentality that the fans are the 12th player on the pitch which has an effect on the way the players play.
Some may not get that attachment, like yourself or take on the matters and that is fair enough, we all have different levels of attachment to the club or why we support the club but I personally see it as that the fans are the beating soul of the club, we'll be here long after most players and management staff and as we see the season out I think we ourselves remember the role we have played in restoring that togetherness and spirit that makes us unique as a club.


Whatever the display is going to be, I'm sure it will be another moment in which we can display our uniqueness and passion for our football club. :p

I know I don't know what the display is yet.
But when you were asked what would be on it or if the Sams would get acknowledged, you never said that they would - instead mentioned the "fanbase" and players - intimating that the turnaround was entirely down to the fact that some supporters had decided to stop moaning and abusing - making it a miserable experience for the players to play in front of - and actually get behind the team again. That's what we should have been doing.

Of course I get that attachment.
Playing in front of fans that get behind the team is always better than barracking - or silly silent protests.

I just hope that the management get acknowledged as well.

I know the HF were quick to dig out Sam on his home debut with a banner.
I know that some managers were never taken to by the HF - hence the shameful "South London's Red and Blue Army" chants.

I just think that personalities and egos should be put to one side and all aspects of the turnaround be acknowledged.

Look, we are enjoying a good run at the moment, there is no doubt about that. But, as mentioned before, we shouldn't be getting carried away with ourseleves just yet during Allardyce first good spell in charge here. Most people I speak to say the same and I think it is a fair point given our recent relationships with managers at the club.
As I said before, I think the fans played a huge role in the way the team had turned it around and it's fine if you disagree with that or not. Personally I think we were right to question what was going on at the club at that time due to the upheaval of Pardew sacking and the state he left the club in. On top of that there were many things going on around the club at the time which coincided with Allardyce's appointment in which we were still suffering defeats. At that time, the support was there until the Sunderland game if the belief wasn't. Hence why I believe it is right that we as a fanbase recogonise what a huge role we played in restoring that belief in the stands and giving the players a clean slate to work from.

South London's red and blue army are London's unique supporters.

They're entitled to do a display about what they want. Like FP said above, if you want to do a display about Big Sam get the money together, put the time in and organise it yourself. They have never claimed that the displays are a democracy i.e. chip in and you can choose who it's about, the idea is that you put the money in and assume that the displays will be top class (which to date they have... except maybe the slightly phallic fortress Selhurst one).

Not sure why you need to fish out on this. I'm sure fans are and have acknowledged Allardyce's good run and I'm sure others will as the season is played out should they so wish.

The group has never done a full stand display for a management team that has been here half a season, especially a management team with no links to the club previously in any capacity. These displays are there to celebrate the club, our culture, our heritage and mentality as supporters of the club. I can only offer you apology if the display ends up not wanting what you want it to be. :D

Anyway, on to another smashing atmosphere in the stands tonight. :p

It seems like an unlucky Omen to me! & Before People think this is a dig at the HF i'd like to clarify that it is'nt,just a question thats been bugging me for a while?

Im FAR! from thier biggest fan but,credit where its due,They really have stepped up to the mark in recent times since the unsavoury scenes by the tunnel at the end of the Sunderland game,Atmosphere really has been ramped up IMO.

We have just gone past the halfway stage to fund the display at the last home game of the season. A huge thankyou again to everyone that has chipped in. These displays wouldn't be possible without your help and donations and it is always humbling to see all the messages of positivity about previous and future displays.

We are still working on getting an IBAN set up for bank transfers for those abroad that wish to contribute. Hopefully after the bank holiday I'll be able to post up the number for the account.

For those that still want to donate the details are;

Account Name: Holmesdale Fanatics
Account: 50305359
Sort Code: 20-84-20

The paypal account;
hf05merch@hotmail.com

On top of that, once again tomorrow there will be guys doing bucket collections at The Holmesdale pub and in the concourse pre-match and at half time. Let's see the team out in style in our last two home games and secure staying up!

Not for me. I'll probably see Palace relegated at least another 10 times in my life but I doubt I'll ever see Palace win a few trophies, let alone one

That was a good day out. Relegation may well change the future of the club for years to come. Whether people like it or not staying in the Premier League is a must if we want to develop the stadium, academy and training facilities none of which will be possible losing money in the championship.

Sunday we as fans have to give it everything, if we are nervous that will transmit to the players. Hull have nothing to lose, get beat and they are pretty much dead.

Displays aren't done based on who we play nor TV audience.

But the point I was making was in reference to having a poor record with them. You latched onto a side point that I thought may explain why those games were chosen. Though I suspect 'you got the money we got the soul' was only shown because we played Man City, as opposed to say, Burnley

Staying up is far more important than winning the cup was.

No player left the club because we didn't win the cup.
No-one slashed our budget because we didn't win the cup.
Perhaps most importantly no-one laid off half the non-playing staff because we didn't win the cup.

As nice as it would have been to win the cup we got over it pretty quickly. We could take years to get over going down in the next fortnight.

Also, us remaining in this division gives us a far better chance of winning the cup.

If we want successes, we first need to lay down the foundation.

Totally. Staying up this season we have a say 1% chance of winning the cup next season. Going down and it's 0.001%.

I believe so. Incredible effort once again to raise so much in such a short space of time. Work started on Monday with some lads working through the night the past two nights. :p

Setting up nicely to be a top day on Sunday even despite the early kick off. Looking forward to seeing it all finished and a top atmosphere in the ground as we secure safety! :lux:

I'd happily win the cup the take a long spiral down to the Conference myself. No number of years in the Prem equals a trophy. However, being in the Prem gives us the opprtunity to build the team that will win us a cup.

As many people as possible in the ground by 11-30, we need to be rocking the place for half hour before kick off, otherwise it can be difficult to get the atmosphere going with everyone nervous and devoid of alcohol.

Why? Whatever the supporters do at home doesn't seem to raise the players. We have won more games away from home that at Selhurst in the last three years. We actually might be better off playing this game at Hull.

I will however be there in the upper tier about 30 minutes before the game starts.
